Results

 

Respected throughout Minnesota, Matonich Law has achieved multiple verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million for our clients, including cases involving medical device litigation, medical malpractice and more.

Below are just a few of the results we have obtained for our clients, providing them with the security they need to cope with the harm they have suffered.

We have brought to trial numerous other claims that have resulted in jury verdicts between $100,000 and $500,000, and have settled hundreds more. Again, past successes are not a guarantee of future results. Nonetheless, Matonich Law has a reputation for working hard and devoting the resources necessary to achieve fair results for all of our clients.

Recently there have been a number of settlements of major cases handled by Matonich Law where the defendants and/or their insurance companies have demanded confidentiality as part of the settlement agreement. Additionally, we and our clients often feel that it is not in their best interests to disclose any details regarding settlement of their cases. Thus, the amounts of several recent settlements cannot be published.

In 2007, the daughter of a Paynesville family was severely handicapped due to complications during her birth at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar. As a result of being deprived of oxygen during delivery, she has multiple health problems, including spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, cortical impairment, neurological difficulties, and seizures. In 2010, her family was awarded this verdict.

No offer was forthcoming from the insurance company prior to trial.

$400,000 Settlement

A young couple delivered a baby who was born with a curable heart condition. Doctors and nurses failed to properly monitor the infant, which resulted in the death of the child. Under the terms of the 2013 settlement agreement, the defendants’ names must remain confidential.

$375,000 Jury Verdict

An 83-year-old-man died due to having an allergic reaction to contrast dye used in a CT scan.
